The pain in his surgically repaired left ankle is so severe that Frank Thomas has trouble walking out of the clubhouse after games.
"It's a 10 right now, a real 10," Thomas said Friday, rating his pain level.
Struggling at the plate with a .219 average despite hitting 12 homers in 105 at-bats for the Chicago White Sox, Thomas was put back on the 15-day disabled list Friday.
But Thomas has great career statistics, 448 home runs and a .307 batting average.
As for the good news, the White Sox beat the Red Sox 8-4 tonight, John Garland picked up his 15th victory.
